Hoobastank is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road, inside the studio and more in their upcoming docuseries, as the band reflects on the 20 year anniversary of their self-titled album. In 2001, the So/Cal alt rock band’s self-titled release, Hoobastank, launched the career of the band to mainstream success with huge singles including “Crawling In The Dark,” “Running Away,” and “Remember Me,” all of which have since been certified RIAA platinum. The band will be releasing the docuseries in parts over the next few weeks, with new episodes dropping every other week.

Almost two decades later, the band is still clocking in at over 6M monthly listeners on Spotify and “Crawling In The Dark” has surpassed the 100M streaming mark across DSPs. The band’s 2003 follow up studio album The Reason took them to even greater heights and solidified Hoobastank as a household name. The title track “The Reason” went 4x RIAA Platinum and racked up quite a few #1 chart positions along the way, while the album went 2x RIAA Platinum. “The Reason” has over 2 Billion streams/views which has helped lead the way to the band’s catalog surpassing the 3 billion mark across the various streaming platforms. The band looks forward to continuing their success in the years to come while also celebrating what they have accomplished so far.
